When you do it NOT to the least of these ....

.

I have a dear sister whom I met some months ago while participating on an Internet forum. We found God had placed us on the same path of total surrender unto His Will. Also it became evident that we both had been given hearts that cried out to God, "what ever it takes Lord! I care only to be filled with your holiness and love and be brought into the very image of your precious Son, Jesus."

A few days ago my friend and sister Eliyah, who goes by the forum user name "Heavenly Spy" shared some time together on a fundamentalist Christian forum made up of people that had been bound by the demonic doctrine of "Hell, a place of eternal torment." It was a wondrous experience as God showed Himself mighty through our messages proclaiming "His enduring and loving mercy extended to all men." We used scriptural support along with recorded church history for all we shared and before long it became clear to these, that desired to send most of mankind to Hell, that they had nowhere to hide their horrid doctrine of "eternal torment." Hell, had been clearly shown to be a pagan myth promoted by carnal men to control other men through fear.

Today Eliyah shares some of her experience on that forum some days ago. She also shares other insights regarding this damnable doctrine of eternal Hellfire. I thoroughly enjoyed her message and especially her "black sheep" analogy. I believe you will too.

When you do it NOT to the least of these....

When you do it NOT to the least of these.... Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: for I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?

Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal. ( Matthew 25:40-46 King James version)


And, answering, the King shall be declaring to them, 'Verily, I am saying to you, In as much as you do it to one of these, the least of My brethren, you do it to Me.'
Then shall He be declaring to those also at His left, 'Go from Me, you cursed, into the fire eonian, made ready for the Adversary and his messengers. For I hunger and you do not give Me to eat; I thirst and you do not give Me drink; a stranger was I and you did not take Me in; naked and you did not clothe Me; infirm and in jail and you did not visit Me.'

Then shall they also be answering, saying, 'Lord, when did we perceive you hungering or thirsting, or a stranger, or naked, or infirm, or in jail, and we did not serve you?'

Then shall He be answering them, saying, 'Verily, I am saying to you, In as much as you do it not to one of these, the least, neither do you it to Me.' And these shall be coming away into chastening eonian, yet the just into life eonian. (Matthew 25:40-46 Concordant Literal N.T.)

These scriptures I saw in a new light today. For I saw that I had been guilty of exactly what the Lord said "As you did it NOT to one of the least of these, ye did it not unto me."

What did I not do?

The Lord recently took me on another SCOUTING adventure...this time to a fundamentalist forum. I was STUNNED to hear so many RABID and VENOMOUS comments made to me in regards to my views of the ERROR teaching of 'everlasting torment'.

The Holy Spirit gently revealed to me that this was a "LOOK BACK" to my very own heart and what it too has spewed forth in the past.

The HOLY SPY took His heavenly spy and allowed her to see her own heart and the damage that had been wrought to it and others through the belief in this demonic doctrine.

I am truly humbled and in much sorrow...and deeply repentant.

It was just a little over 3 years ago that both my husband and I sent out Christmas cards with a 'salvation message' that warned of Hell if one did not repent and give their heart to Jesus....yep, I know what you are thinking...gee, I bet that was a real MERRY Christmas for the one receiving the card! ohhhh I am humbled today.

Both my husband and I have had our eyes open to so much over the last 4 years...talk about alot of shaking going on! Truly at times we felt like a pin-ball too. For just when we would learn about one error we then would SWING way over to the other side so that we would not be deceived only to find out that we had jumped from the frying pan into the fire!

A whole lotta shakin' going on...this was the song sang round our house I am sure by the angels!

Getting back to the scripture I shared I have always viewed it more from a literal perspective but today I saw through the lens of DIVINE interpretation.

Who are the strangers that are hungry, thirsty, naked, sick and IN PRISON? These strangers are those that Christendom says are the residents of HELL, and since churchianity believes that the majority of people will end up in hell...these strangers are also the majority of the world. My thoughts of those that went to Hell were 'Well you reap what you sow...they rejected the Lamb and it is deserved....God is Just and past finding out....His ways are higher than my ways...blah, blah..."

I see now that my thoughts were of a critical and judgemental spirit of which is rooted in pride. Pride says, "I was the one who gave my life to the Lord."...nope!.... For TRUTH says."He chose me and I did not have anything to DO with it at all...it was His grace alone and I was chosen to be the recipient of His wonderful grace". I had no understanding that the 'creature was made SUBJECT TO VANITY"...couldn't help itself...and that it is only BY HIS GRACE that I am what I am. The 'real good news' as my brother John and sister Joian love to say is that eventually ALL will be saved in due time...each man in his own order. That means the entire WORLD...past, present, and future. The whole world IS CHOSEN for his wonderful grace...and every man, woman, and child will also be able to say...."It is BY HIS GRACE alone that I am what I am".
So it is with deep thanksgiving and humbleness of heart that I give thanks to the King of Glory, for He has delivered me of those critical, haughty, judgemental, & unloving thoughts and washed my mind in His BLOOD. I praise you Lord!

The Lord showed me many times that this scripture was a TEST in my own life...and I FAILED miserably! He then showed me that this forum was to make right what I had made wrong so many times in the past...to be the advocate for the prisoner...to be the advocate for the naked...to CLOTHE with the truth all those precious babes that are asking tough questions instead of feeding them the same old empty and false man-made teachings.

To feed the hungry of heart that have been waiting for someone to come in and SET THEM FREE from all the crap of the PRISON of the carnal mind and reasoning. To love and comfort all who are SICK of feeling like they are the crazy person in the group, the black sheep. These are those that have never been satisfied with the Harlot system and have seen its corruption and yet when they bring their questions up to the elders they are told to submit to their HEAD (pastor), and warned not to become rebellious. Their genuine questions are shot down and they themselves are told to stop being a trouble maker..and when the questions persist they are given the left foot of fellowship.

I am reminded by the comments of a wise therapist..."the black sheep are the HEALTHIEST members in the entire household...for they are the ones that see all the DYSFUNCTION and point it out to everyone and this makes the unhealthy sheep angry so to discredit the healthy sheep it is stamped with the label 'black sheep'". Is it any wonder that most of the psyche hospitals are filled with these BLACK SHEEP...for they were really the healthy ones that were made crazy by the unhealthy ones. Unfortunately, it is the same unhealthy sheep that say "Hell is from God"... while the black sheep say "that doesn't sound like a God I would want". Jesus himself was looked upon by many as the black sheep, for he was ever pointing out the dysfunction of the religious leaders of his time....that bad Jesus the trouble maker....but for others Jesus was the PURE SPOTLESS WHITE LAMB that would take away the sins for the WHOLE WORLD! Glory to His most wonderful name!

So it was with great joy that I was shown that I now was able to do some good UNTO the least of these my brethren ....for I now see that I was ministering unto HIM.

Did I pass the test?? Well, I hope I did...and yet I also realize that I could have done a better job on the test...for there were times that I did not always respond as Stephen or Jesus..."Father forgive them for they know not what they do"....

HOLY SPY scouted out my land....and revealed to me that I have a good land but showed me that the soil needed some DUNGING...and this is why He took me to the fundamentalist site...for sheep make good DUNG...and this was for HIS GOOD and HOLY purposes so that HIS LOVE CROP can finally grow!

Tears.

This has been my prayer for as long as I can remember..."Lord fill me with your love'..."I just want to BE your love"....

I am now on my journey for this glorious harvest and I am truly humbled.

Tears rolling now.

What a Saviour! What a LORD!

I worship you my Yahshua..my beautiful Yahshua.
